Year 2 - w.b. 25.1.21

Weekly Timetable

 

The 1st Reading Challenge of 2021 is now ready!

   

It's fun and easy to take part.  Please visit the Library Zone section of the school website to complete the challenge.

Talking with your child about books is a wonderful thing and we'd love to find out what they love to read too. 

If you and your child would like to share with us what they are reading, that would be fantastic!  Younger children may of course need some help to add the information to the form. 

We look forward to finding out what your favourite things to read are!  Thank you.

Mrs Beddow, Reading Champion :-)
